My Weekend Crush
Ugly really is the new pretty. I’m starting to love “Ugly Betty.” The new series effortlessly blends camp and heart (no small feat) and brings us something practically unheard of on primetime televisions: a big, brainy and brave Hispanic heroine. Betty Suarez is the opposite of the rail-thin glamazons and too-cool hipsters we see everyday on TV. Can I get a Hallelujah. The woman behind Betty is lovely young actress America Ferrera. She proves that, like her first film, “Real Women Have Curves” - and they look damn good with them, thank you. Happy weekend, all.
